Gustavus Risberg wrote from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Susan Niemcewicz in Elizabethtown, New Jersey. Risberg received a note from Mrs. Cox asking for an abatement in her rent if she were to stay another year. He also noted that it appeared Mrs. Cox changed her mind about purchasing Susan’s house and did not seem inclined to continue renting at the present price of rent. Risberg asked Susan to instruct him how to act. Mrs. Cox also complained of a nuisance in the yard, which was believed to be originally from the vault. Although a skillful Mason repaired it, there was still a disagreeable smell during warm weather. Mr. Willing used to complain of the same thing often.
Susan Kean, formerly Susan Livingston and later Susan Ursin Niemcewicz (1759-1833)
